Help with Plant Identification

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 08:54

With those vicious thorns on the leaves this is a more exotic plant than we get in UK.

I do not think it is Eryngium.

Wait for flowers and please add new pics to this thread... that may really help.

I am not familiar with the weeds/plants  in your area

I wonder if it might  be Solanum sp.

Such as Solanum  mammosum. Time will tell.....


ID on tree and accompanying Ivy please

8. Weigela.

Really hate the way you cannot edit on here once someone else has posted!


2. Looks like Rhododendron... one normally known by common name Azalea.

I would like to see more pic to try to give accurate ids.

Showing the whole plant.

A good close up of leaves on the twig.

Flower etc .

Trying to identify a geranium

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 11:59


There are hundreds/if not thousands  of species and named cultivars of hardy Geraniums.

Even with a pic to show the leaf shape and flowers, id would be difficult to be 100% accurate.

Just wondering if it might be Aconitum sp?

Wait for flowers which will prove if Geranium ... or not

What is it?

It is a Ruellia sp.

Maybe Ruellia simplex?

I have a new man in my life

Lovely geranium... but it will take over your whole garden!

Should be sold with A HEALTH WARNING!
